NEW YORK—Technicolor – PostWorks, New York,
Manhattan’s largest independent provider of post-production services, has
brought on Jack Lewars as Senior Colorist. Lewars, who arrives with more than
80 features to his credit, will be available for feature and television
projects both through Technicolor – PostWorks and through The Room, the
finishing boutique located within the Technicolor – PostWorks facility.
Lewars is currently working on several new documentary projects
for Martin Scorsese, his second time working with the director. He recently
completed two documentaries for Alex Gibney, We Steal Secrets: The History of WikiLeaks and History of the Eagles. He graded both documentaries at The Room.

“Jack is a gentleman and a great talent,” said Rob DeMartin,
Chief Operating Officer of Technicolor – 
PostWorks New York.  “We couldn’t
be happier in welcoming him to the Technicolor – PostWorks family!”
“Jack’s arrival greatly enhances our feature DI services,”
said The Room founder Ben Murray. “He is a superb collaborator whose experience
at the industry’s leading edge will be invaluable as we continue to develop new
finishing approaches tailored to the latest formats and workflows.”
Lewars began his career in 2001 with Efilm in Hollywood and
rose to become a full colorist in just five years. In 2007, he took a staff
position at Deluxe’s facility in New York City. In 2010, he performed a
complete DI grade of the Martin Scorsese film Gangs of New York prior to its release on Blu-ray (working under
the direction of Scorsese and Editor Thelma
Schoonmaker). A year later, he re-graded the Kenneth Lonergan film Margaret for its home entertainment
release. His credits also include Public
, Return and Our Idiot Brother. Additionally, he has credits
in episodic and long-form television, commercials and music videos. He is a
graduate of the film school at Penn State.
In discussing his reasons for joining Technicolor –
PostWorks, Lewars said that he is impressed with its focus on creativity and
customer service. “Working here reminds me of why I got into filmmaking,” he
observed. “We listen to what the filmmakers want to accomplish and discuss how
best to execute their intentions. We have a ‘Jerry Maguire’ mentality: we
deliver highly-personalized client attention along with unmatched tools and
workflows. We can accommodate any need.”
Lewars adds that he has enjoyed the projects he has worked
on at The Room, especially his collaborations with Gibney. “Never have I worked
with a filmmaker who makes films at such a prolific rate and produces such consistently
compelling results,” he said.
Lewars sees Technicolor – PostWorks as an integral part of a
New York’s fast-growing filmmaking community. “New York is becoming a national
hub for filmmakers,” he said. “I’m very excited to be here and to be part of
this new era.”
